It's always a treat to return to the island and visit the Del for Sunday brunch. It never disappoints. Amazing variety of food with tastes for every palate. Spendy but worth every penny for the experience. I've never had another brunch like this one!

I don't know if you can rent out the room - you'd have to call the hotel for that but it can easily hold a couple hundred people.

The brunch is $90.00 and they automatically add on an 18% gratuity. The cost is payable upon reservation, not when you actually go and eat the brunch.
